Might Kirsten Storms soon be back on the GENERAL HOSPITAL set to reclaim the role of Maxie Jones? That what her mother, Karen, tells their hometown paper, The Orlando Sentinel. "She is returning to 'GH' the end of this month actually in her role of Maxie," Karen Storms said in an E-mail on Friday afternoon. "She's happy and excited to be back."
A spokesperson for ABC says that they have no comment at this time regarding Storms' return. The actress took a medical leave of absence in September, even dropping out of production on the E! reality show DIRTY SOAP. While ABC has never officially announced what Storms' illness was, it was said on DIRTY SOAP that she suffered from endometriosis.) Daytime newcomer Jen Lilley was tapped to temporarily fill in as Maxie, and has made the most out of a difficult situation in taking over a role played by a fan favorite.
"Ever since Kirsten left, we heard whisperings of her coming back," says the ladies' co-star, Bradford Anderson (Spinelli). "All we can do is hope she's in great shape to come back. Whenever that happens, we'll welcome her back with open arms."
